mantle

I’d be strong,
I’d save people,

But there would be times
when I’d fly just to be alone

My cape flapping gently
in the stratosphere

Above the clouds
above the noise

Quiet and stillness
just for me

So I could go back
and continue to be strong

This poem was written to the and sometimes I wear a cape prompt at Poetic Bloomings.
